I once went on a date with a guy who I had met through a mutual friend.

He seemed nice enough, and since neither of us had a car, we decided to walk in to town and see a movie.

It was going OK until we had to cross our first road. I was about to step out to cross when he grabbed my arm and yanked me backwards.

I thought there must have been a car I hadn't seen, until he said: "You can't cross the road by yourself! You're a woman, and women aren't sensible enough to cross the road alone. Now hold my hand please."

I burst out laughing and he seemed genuinely unaware of how stupid he sounded.

I never went out with him again and I've managed to sensibly cross many roads by myself since.
